Dorothy Gray Make Up Routine in 1947

By Glamourdaze @GlamourdazeBlog

Pathe news visits a Dorothy Gray beauty salon –

Every woman knows that tired slack feeling after a hard days work in the office, the shop or even in the kitchen.


How wonderful it feels to relax in the comfortable couch in the beauty parlour and let the expert turn you into a new woman.


Here the Dorothy Gray way starts like all others by cleansing the skin to remove all the dirt that has worked its way in to a girls skin. Watch this gentlemen for maybe you’ll be asked to do this when you get home !


The toning up of the skin while the expert is taking careful note of the hair colouring and texture to determine the exact type of make-up she will use.


The foundation is applied gently with a fingertip technique.


Now the eye shadow and mascara – that little touch of cream which adds new glamour to natural loveliness.


And last but most important – the lipstick which is brushed on of course.


Look at her – Madam is beautiful again and does she feel good !!

That’s all !
